Is there a better bit depth I can set Reaper to that will sound better?
The Dithering needs to be imposed just before converting to the lowest bit count in the chain. After that the damage is done and no way to repair.
That is why you never should go to 16 before the final rendering to CD quality (if ever). And for any previous step FP is the best choice as it prevents clipping.
